x2. I'be flown p.s. so often over the years that I've become accustomed to wifi on United - it's become part of my flight routine; seat in lounge mode, noise cancelling headphones on (UA really needs to bring their old p.s. noise cancelling headphones over to intl. F), straight to my email. Stepping onto anything other than a 3-class 757 is always quite jarring to me because of this. wifi and the SQ spacebeds (which I actually like a lot) make me heavily bias towards p.s., even over the 2-class intl. 757s.

The irony is that power becomes more important when Wi-Fi is used since Wi-Fi increases power consumption significantly.
